Tajikistan - Facts and Travel Information
Note: This page is similar to wiki, which means you can edit the content.


Tajikistan is a country of 6 million people located in Central Asia, in the area that was formerly the souther tip of the Soviet Union. The Republic of Tajikistan is bordered by Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, China and Afghanistan.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan became an independent country, but in 1992 civil war broke out, which lasted until 1997. Since the war has ended, tourism is slowly coming back, and one of the biggest lures in the country remains the mountains, which cover most of the country, and attract those looking for the opportunity to hike, climb, and do other outdoor recreational activities. The highest peak in the country is Peak Somoni at 23,400 feet (7495 meters), located in the Pamir Mountains in Badakhshan. One of the largest glaciers in the world is also located in Tajikistan.
